All you need are a few simple ingredients to make these Reindeer Cakes on a stick. Little Debbie's Swiss Rolls are the base for these reindeer desserts that are sure to please the kids this holiday season. Let me show how easy these are to put together. And if you really want to have fun, why not get the kids involved in helping you?
These Reindeer Cakes are so adorable and easy to put together. Seriously, in just a few minutes you can have quite a few of these ready.
Wrap these up in cellophane bags to give as treats for school parties or church parties. How about making a few for the family while watching Christmas movies together?
You don't have to make them on a stick either. If you want, you make them like a cake pop and use a colorful straw. Or serve them just as cakes. However you choose, everyone will love them!

Main Ingredients Needed
Exact measurements are listed below in the recipe card. Make sure you scroll down to print and save the recipe for later!
- Swiss Rolls - if you can't find the Little Debbie brand, you can use Drake's Yodels or even Ho-Ho's.
- Chocolate Frosting
- Small Candy Eyes
- Red Candies - for the nose. I used red M&M's. But you could use Red Hots or red Skittle candies.
- Pretzels - for the antlers
- Craft Sticks
- Open the Swiss Cake Rolls and discard the wrappers. Insert a craft stick into the base of each cake.
- Carefully break the pretzel twists in half and insert into the side of the cakes for the reindeer antlers.
- Add a small amount of chocolate frosting to the back of two eyes and place on the roll.
- Finally add a small amount of chocolate frosting to the back of the red candy and place on the cake for the reindeer, or Rudolph's, nose.
You can see that for this one I off-set the eyes to make the reindeer even cuter!

In the original package, Little Debbie Swiss Rolls can last for about 4 weeks. However, once opened and out of their package, they should be eaten with 2 to 3 days.
You can freeze Little Debbie's pre-packaged snack cakes for up to 3 months.
- Use a different cake - you can make these with different cakes. Try Ho-Ho's or Ring Dings for a round reindeer face. Even a Twinkie would work!
- Check out my Reindeer Treats that use Oreo Cookies on a stick!
- Store the Reindeer Cakes in an airtight container for up to 7 days. However, the pretzels will get soft after storing for a few days.
- If you do need to store these for a few days, it's best to remove the pretzels and add new ones when you're ready to eat.
